Topic

The Solace Teachings: Humanizing Health Care

The Solace Teachings program & curriculum for health care is designed to provide education, training and tools to enhance skillful, humanitarian end-of-life care for health care professionals and caregivers.

Increasing demands and pressures faced by health care organizations have resulted in an emphasis on clinical skills training.

The Solace Teachings core curriculum fills the gap for psychosocial education, critical to all disciplines working in hospice and palliative care. The demographic impact of the aging population and shrinking health care workforce brings an increasing focus and demand on end-of-life care.

This program supports organizational and business development to meet these needs.
